Justin Anderson
26-Year-Old PitcherRP
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Anderson spent the bulk of the 2017 season at the Double-A level, showing very little promise as he posted a 36:29 K:BB and a 5.06 ERA for Mobile. By May 14 of 2018, however, he'd picked up his first big-league save, and he'd go on to record three more for the Angels to go along with a 4.07 ERA in 55.1 innings. He throws hard but wasn't exactly dominant. To become a trustworthy high-leverage reliever, Anderson will have to make a considerable dent in his walk rate, which sat at an untenable 16.6% in his rookie campaign, second-worst among all pitchers who threw at least 50 innings. Control problems are unsurprising for a pitcher who throws his slider 55 percent of the time. Anderson's 27.8% strikeout rate is more good than great and isn't enough for him to overcome such a significant deficiency. Read Past Outlooks
Picks up 18th hold
PLos Angeles Angels
September 4, 2018
Anderson recorded one out via the strikeout en route to his 18th hold in Monday's 3-1 victory over the Rangers.
ANALYSIS
Anderson was sharing save chances with Blake Parker for a brief stretch earlier this summer, but he has fallen back into a setup role with the latter picking up each of the Halos' last four saves. Outside of a lack of control (6.0 BB/9), Anderson has thrived in whatever role manager Mike Scioscia has asked him to fill this year with a 3.38 ERA and 11.2 K/9 over 50.2 innings.
